Troubles at Málaga Football Club08-08-2012
Top player, Santi Cazorla, is moving to Arsenal and other players could follow suit as many of them have not been paid.
Problems are growing for Málaga Football Club, and reports of the departure of their top player, Santi Cazorla, could see other players follow suit. Santi Cazorla is off to Arsenal, and went to London on Thursday for a medical ahead of the deal which is worth 23 million €.
There was training session hosted by Manuel Pellegrini at La Roselada this week, where the club’s financial difficulties emerged. 30 to 40% of the players, and the coach Pellegrni, have been paid, despite the fact the club is owned by Sheikh Abdulla bin Nassar Al-Thani. He and his board have been very quiet of later. It seems the deposits from the emirate have stopped arriving in Málaga.
There are reports that the sheikh paid 36 million € for the club in June 2010, and then spent 65 million on player has lost interest, despite the fact that Málaga will be in the potentially lucrative Champions League qualifiers. There could be a problem with that as in 2010-2011 Mallorca was banned by UEFA as it had gone into voluntary bankruptcy.
Nobody seems to know what is going on, but there are reports the sheikh will sell the club to the highest bidder.
